Number of Portions
Pan fried Duck with Rhubarb & Ginger Sauce


- 4 duck breasts, skin on
- 4 tbsp honey
- 125 grams rhubarb, finely chopped
- 50 grams dried cherries
- 1 tbsp Ground Ginger
- 300 ml orange juice
- 300 ml rose wine


Pre-heat the oven to 200°C, 400°F, Gas Mark 6.

Heat a frying pan, add the duck breast, skin side down and fry until the skin is crisp. Transfer to an ovenproof dish, keeping the pan and the fat for later. Pour 2 tbs honey over the duck and roast in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. Remove the duck from the oven, reserving the juices from the duck, and allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Add the rhubarb, dried cherries and Ginger to the frying pan that you used to cook the duck and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Pour the orange juice and rose wine into the frying pan and bring to the boil for about 10 minutes, allowing the liquid to reduce. Add the juices from the duck and the remaining honey, and bring back to the boil. Reduce to a sauce consistency, then return the rhubarb and cherries back to the pan for 1 minute.

Serve the cooked duck with the rhubarb, cherries and sauce.
